Taking care of your trees extends the life of the tree, adds property value and increases safety for your home and or environment. The benefits of trees range from purifying our air, helping to mediate water run off, and can dramatically increase efficiency in cooling and heating your home. Also they provide wildlife habitat and give us a more pleasant place to live.
Proper pruning is essential in establishing and maintaining a tree with strong structure and desirable form. Young trees appropriately pruned will require less attention as they mature than ones that haven’t. Poor pruning caused by inadequately trained workers with little or no knowledge of tree biology can cause irreparable damage. This will last for the lifespan of the tree or worse even shorten it’s life.
An ISA certified arborist is a specialist in the care of individual trees, they are knowledgeable about the needs of trees and are trained and equipped to provide proper care. Pruning and removing trees, especially large ones, can be dangerous work and should be done by those with extensive training, proper equipment and adequate liability insurance.
